If you’re curious what all the buzz is about regarding wristlet wallets and purses, here’s what you need to know.
All About Wristlets
Wristlets are one of the best innovations in women’s purse, handbag, and wallet styles. They combine the ease and size of wallets with the style and class of full-size purses. By definition, wristlets are small pouches or bags with a strap that is meant to be worn hanging from the wrist.
Wristlet purses are often confused with clutch bags, but the wrist strap is what makes the major difference in these two styles of bags. This addition makes a small pouch or pocketbook style bag so much more convenient. Plus, for those of us who are always losing our wallet or ID, the fact that you can literally hang it from your wrist makes your life so much easier.
Types of Wristlets
Just like standard purses, handbags, or wallets, there are numerous types of wristlets that suit any closet or lifestyle. With so many different styles of wristlets, there is sure to be a cute wristlet that matches your unique tastes.
Wristlets can come in many different colorways and materials, ranging from sophisticated leather wristlets to more casual canvas or nylon wristlets. You could dress up a leather wristlet for a night on the town or tote a nylon wristlet for a few quick errands at the mall. This style of women’s handbag is one of the most versatile, especially for women who prefer not to carry too much with them on their day-to-day activities.
Wristlets also range in construction and silhouette. Some wristlets are pouch wristlets, with a large central compartment and snap or zip closure. A pouch wristlet has very few additional interior or exterior pockets, but still looks very chic.
Another popular style of wristlet is one that is more akin to a large organizer wallet. This type of wristlet has many interior slots and pockets to keep your cash, cards, and coins under control and in perfect harmony. If you’re a woman who likes to have a big pocketbook but doesn’t need to carry much else, this type of wristlet could be perfect for you.
One of the most classic wristlet styles is our My Big Fat Wallet. My Big Fat Wallet is an oversized pocketbook style, with a detachable wrist strap and faux leather exterior. If you’re new to the world of wristlets, this style is an optimal place to start.
It has a classic silhouette but comes in so many different colorways, from solids to patterns, so it’s a great initial wristlet for any woman. As an added bonus, My Big Fat Wallet has our RFID blocking technology, which keeps you safe from anyone attempting to steal your personal information with an RFID reader.
Where and How to Wear a Wristlet
Styling a wristlet is easy breezy. This compact, easily mobile style of purse can be simply slung on the wrist as you head out for your day. Wristlets are the perfect “going out” bag, and a chic black leather one can be paired with slim pants, heels, and your favorite jacket for a bar or concert look.
You can also sport a casual nylon wristlet with a fashionable sweat set and clean sneakers for a great “lazy Sunday” look that looks anything but lazy. Just check out our Jacqui Cell Phone Wallet for some casual wristlet inspiration.
Wristlets are wonderful accessories because you can wear them almost anywhere, and they never make you look overdressed or underdressed the way other handbag styles might.
Why Should I Get a Wristlet?
Wristlets Wallets are perfect for you if you find that you’re always running out the door in the nick of time to get to your appointment or reservation, or if you find yourself losing or forgetting some of your most important items.
Wristlets make it easy for you to just grab one item and go, without having to concern yourself with which handbag you left your wallet, keys, or phone in. It’s also a great travelling companion.
